Get the Default OS X Mavericks Wave Wallpaper

Jun 10, 2013 - Leave a Comment

OS X Mavericks (10.9) will be out later this year, but you don’t have to wait that long to get the sweet new wave wallpaper that will be the default desktop background on future Macs and OS X releases.

You can also get the wallpaper by clicking the image above. This is the full retina resolution uncompressed version directly from Apple, a lower res variation is floating around but you may find some artifacts in that version, so it’s best to grab the full-res if you want to have it look it’s best at all screen resolutions. Put this on your Mac or iOS devices in anticipation for the fall public release of Mavericks… it looks pretty great. Interesting to note is the 5120×2880 resolution, which is 2x what the default wallpapers are for OS X right now… suggesting a retina Mac is in the works somewhere…

In case you were interested in some background, the wave pictured in the shot is from Mavericks, a popular big-wave surf spot north of Half Moon Bay in California, which is also what OS X 10.9 Mavericks is named after.

Want some more wave wallpapers? You may recall that we posted a gallery of wave backgrounds last month… ;] check them out too!
